When I hear music, I fear no danger. I am invulnerable. I see no foe. I am related to the earliest times, and to the latest.

Though she’s a Beyoncé fan through and through, Normani has said that the Destiny’s Child member she relates to most is Kelly Rowland. She says she admires Rowland’s grace and her 2011 hit “Motivation,” but perhaps there’s a more obvious reason: Compared to the skyrocketing success of fellow former Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello, Normani’s solo career has developed more slowly. On “Motivation,” the 23-year-old’s first single all by herself, she steps out with sparkle and command, making the case that Fifth Harmony doesn’t have just one all-star alum.She’s recorded lovelorn duets with Sam Smith, Khalid, and 6LACK, but on ...

Big Thief cherish the majesty of small moments—a seed in the wind—and push huge ones—the rings of saturn—closer towards transcendence. The Brooklyn quartet named their second record Capacity, after all, and no other word can better describe the cosmic potential Big Thief can evoke. But the journey on their new, six-minute single “Not” is a close second.Rather than detailing all the life around her, Adrianne Lenker cleverly uses negation to draw its shadows, letting the mystery of the unsaid bloom. “Not the meat of your thigh/Nor your spine tattoo/Nor your shimmery eye/Nor the wet of the dew,” she quivers, lingering ...

Angel Olsen is a master of shifting our perception of her. Each one of her albums has been a sweeping evolution—sonic, musical, conceptual—that has made its predecessor seem humble by comparison. “All Mirrors,” the title track of her upcoming fourth album, immediately sounds bigger than anything she’s done before. Initial listens will leave you overwhelmed by the string arrangement: an ominous, heroic swell over a synthy pulse, the troubled waters that connect the song’s two parts.Some of Olsen’s songs feel like they’ve always existed—lost country standards or themes from old romantic films—but “All Mirrors” is mostly alien. She centers its ...

At only 22, Rico Nasty is out to conquer time through sheer force of will. In a cultural moment saturated with empty calls for self-love, Rico’s cathartic anger provides a welcome specificity and an explicit way forward. Across the emotional landscape of this year’s Anger Management, which producer Kenny Beats likened to the arc of a temper tantrum, Rico expresses the need to be heard in order to heal. “Time Flies,” though straightforward in a way that the tracks on Anger Management are not, serves as a fitting follow-up. She crystallizes the preceding album’s message when she sings “I live ...
